Share a Ride, Gift a Ride
NO MORE is pleased to share an intiative during the 16 days of activism operated by Uber and WESNET.
Share a Ride, Gift a Ride.
Every 9 days, a woman is killed by a current or former intimate partner. Fortunately, with the help of Uber, frontline services in Wesnet’s member Australian-wide network have been able to organise free Uber rides to hundreds of women who are impacted by domestic and family violence.
How can we help?
By sharing your Uber trip status.
Yes, it’s that simple.
During these 16 Days of Activism, we’re inviting Uber riders to share their trip status not only to enhance their own safety but also to, in turn, support victim-survivors of domestic and family violence. Every time the Share My Ride in-app safety feature is used from 25 November to 10 December, Uber will donate $20 credit for safe rides to WESNET to assist domestic and family violence victim-survivors in rebuilding their lives.
How to share a trip status:
Request your ride. Tap to open the app and request a ride as you normally would. Once requested, swipe up on your app screen and tap Send Status.
Share your status. Select up to 5 people from your contact list you want to share your status with.
Be on your way. Those people will receive a text with a link containing your trip details. Opening it displays your driver’s first name and vehicle information, plus your map location in real time.
